The Indian PCB industry has a significant role to play in the country’s economy, especially considering its huge domestic market. The key elements on which Indian PCB companies should focus are capital, consolidation, technology improvements, quality and a global delivery model. Based on these parameters, Electronics Bazaar contacted the industry experts and electronics associations, who shared with us their preferences of leading and emerging PCB players. While this list is by no means comprehensive, it would provide you a glimpse into many of India’s better known PCB companies. We are not ranking them but only listing them in an alphabetical order.
